Watch: Im Siwan And Shin Se Kyung Play A Classic Hollywood Couple In New “Run On” Teaser
Nov 26, 2020
JTBC’s upcoming drama “Run On” has released a new teaser!
“Run On” is a romance about people trying to connect with each other through their own languages after having lived in their individual worlds. It follows the story of former track and field athlete Ki Sun Kyum (Im Siwan), who retires after a life-changing event and becomes a sports agent, and Oh Mi Joo (Shin Se Kyung), a film translator.
The teaser, entirely in black and white, is reminiscent of an old-fashioned film down to the setting and the background music. As the couple stand in front of a piano, Ki Sun Kyum, dressed in a classic suit and tie, dramatically pours a glass of wine for Oh Mi Joo, who exudes grace in her neatly styled lace blouse.
As Ki Sun Kyum passes one glass to Oh Mi Joo and one to the pianist, he says (through a dubbed English voiceover), “A fine day like today calls for a drink.” Then, lifting his glass and looking deep into her eyes, he continues, “Here’s looking at you, kid,” which is a famous line uttered by Humphrey Bogart in the 1942 film “Casablanca.”
The teaser provides a glimpse into Oh Mi Joo’s job as a translator of foreign films, since the well-known line from the movie can be translated differently depending on the context of the scene. In this case, the line is translated into Korean as “A toast to your eyes,” which adds more depth to the romantic atmosphere between the couple.

“Run On” premieres on December 16 at 9 p.m. KST.
